Visit Napa Valley, a leading Napa Valley travel website, recently released their list of top tasting rooms in the Napa Valley – and we are pleased to announce that The Room was included.
“The valley is vast with wineries that are spread out over the 30-mile length of the valley, so deciding which wineries to visit and how to get there can be a bit of a challenge…These are some of our favorite.”
Flora Springs – The Room “is a friendly, relaxed tasting room with limited production, winery-only wine available for sampling. The space features a picnic area and rooftop lounge.” Read more.
Plan your visit to The Room.

8 great Halloween winery adventures
Vines gnarled like a witch’s back. Cobblestoned barrel rooms splattered with red stains. Labs brimming with beakers and gurgling mystery brews.
Face it — wineries were made for Halloween. This month, vintners from Sonoma to the Santa Cruz Mountains are unlatching their cellar doors to host costume parties, pagan balls, horror movie screenings, pumpkin patches and even a carnival for kids.
Flora Springs’ The Room Halloween Harvest Picnic & Movie Night
The bash: October’s movie night will feature attendees’ favorite scary movie — check the winery’s Facebook pagefor the final vote — screened in the rooftop lounge, plus a classic candy and popcorn bar. Want to make a night out of it? Begin with live music in the vineyard courtyard along with a picnic (bring your own or order via the winery two days in advance).
See our Events page for more information on the Movie Night Series (runs August – October every year) and all our events. For more information on visiting The Room, click here.

Many wineries provided relief efforts after the Napa Earthquake. Following the 6.0 earthquake in the Napa area August 24th, the Flora Springs family wanted to help our Napa Valley community.
Upon learning that The Napa Food Bank was low on food, we opened up The Room as a designated Upvalley drop-off location. We collected many grocery bags of food donations and raised over $1000. “A lot of people came in because they said they saw either in print or on social media that we were donating tasting fees,” says Tasting Room Manager Kristin Johnstone. “We will remain a drop-off location as long as needed.”
We also especially wanted to reach out to our Wine Club members, some who suffered significant damage to their homes. In this video – footage from ABC 7 News out of San Francisco – our own Tom Shoar explains. With a small token of support and appreciation, we were able to help our most loyal customers and fans to get back on the road to recovery.
Tom says, “I think it was a very nice break for some people to know someone was thinking of them.” (Footage featuring Flora Springs begins at 1:50.) Leave a comment if you love Tom!

While Flora Springs was fortunate to escape damage due to the Napa earthquake on August 24th, there are many in the area who did not fare as well and are in need of the most basic items.
The Flora Springs family wants to help the Napa Valley community with post-earthquake relief. We have learned that The Napa Food Bank is very low on food, and expects an influx of people over the next few days.
Our tasting room, located in Saint Helena, is now a drop-off location for donations to the Napa Valley Food Bank.
The bank is in need of non-perishable foods—especially tomato products, canned fruit, and canned protein such as tuna, chicken etc., other households supplies, and monetary donations.
Upvalley residents and visitors can drop off donations at The Room, located at 677 S. St Helena Highway (Hwy 29), daily from 10 am – 5 pm.
Also, through Labor Day weekend, the Komes and Garvey families are donating all The Room wine tasting fees to the Food Bank. Stop in for a sip and support your neighbors.
If you prefer to make a donation directly, the Food Bank is located at 1766 Industrial Way in Napa and is open Monday-Friday from 7:30 am – 3:00 pm. If you are outside of the area, you can help too. Donate online.
Should you or someone you know need assistance, check here for food distribution times and locations. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
